MISSOULA, Mont. - Several Missoula non-profits are celebrating following United Way's annual Day of Action.

United Way sent 125 volunteers around Missoula County to help with projects and improve working conditions for local non-profits.

The Tamarack Grief Center was one location that received services. They offer grief and bereavement services for kids and adults. Volunteers from Providence Hospital painted walls and helped renovate the non-profits new building.

United Way workers and volunteers alike said this kind of work can help clients at the center deal with difficult times in their lives.

"It's going to make a huge difference for all the folks who come here right after they've had an incredible loss in their lives and they need to talk to somebody and really work through that process, and painting the walls and making that a safe space to talk is really critical for those moments of grief," said United Way Development Director, Erin Steele.

Tamarack Grief Center Development Director, Liz Manley, said she hopes it will create a cozy, comfortable space for clients. "As a non-profit organization it's a huge benefit to receive the support and have people come in and volunteer their time so generously."

Providence Hospital volunteers were happy to donate their time and energy to give back to the community. "It's a great opportunity to help build our community here in Missoula," said volunteer Shawn Paul.

United Way will host their 85th anniversary in Missoula on June 29th with a celebration and auction in Caras park. Several Missoula non-profits are celebrating following United Way's annual Day of Action.
